Hello, beauties. We just bid goodbye to summer and now it’s the monsoon we’ve got to deal with. Despite the beautiful rain and chilly weather, it comes with complications related to skin care and hair. It becomes necessary to add lightweight products to skin care regime. The only focus at this season should be at skincare rather than makeup, thanks to the humid weather. Keeping this in mind, today I’m going to review Aroma Treasures Aloe Vera Gel which I’ve been using for months.

Aroma Treasures Aloe Vera Gel | Review
First of all, this isn’t pure aloe vera gel, as it contains essential oils and other ingredients. But the great thing is that it’s paraben free. It comes in a transparent tub packaging white cap and I know, it’s unhygienic to dip hands to get out the gel. It is a light green-coloured viscous gel which has a strong fragrance like of a cologne due to the presence of essential oils. I take a scoop of the product and apply it all over my face and lightly massage until it gets absorbed. At initial seconds, it would look sticky but a minute or so the face turns matte and smooth. If it’s put in the fridge before using, it will give a soothing effect to the skin.
It doesn’t make my skin brighter but it definitely makes it looks healthy and smooth. It isn’t sticky and absorbs well on skin. I use it after cleansing and toning my face, as a light moisturizer. On hot, humid days especially on monsoon, this keeps my skin moisturized without getting oily. Though it only keeps the skin oil-free for 3 hours maximum. I have an oily skin and for me, my T-zone starts getting oily in 2-3 hours. It keeps skin fresh but it doesn’t control sweat in summers. Not just as a moisturizer, it also helps me soothe a pimple and I’ve used it on cuts and burns and it calms down the irritation. My brother also started using this gel and he loved it. The only major issue I find it its availability which is online and most of the time, it’s either out of stock or available in the pack of 2. I haven’t used it on hair so can’t comment on it.
- Multipurpose product for skin and hair
- Blends easily into the skin giving a healthy look
- Light moisturizer for oily and combination skin
- Contains essentials oils of lavender, chamomile, vetiver, and geranium.
- Controls oil for 3-4 hours
- Feels soothing to skin
- Not a pure aloe vera gel if you’re expecting
- Tub packaging is unhygienic
- Doesn’t control sweat on skin
Final Word: If you are looking for an aloe vera infused gel for your face with essential oils, pick this one. It sinks into the skin and makes face smooth and oil-free for a longer time. It’s not a pure aloe vera gel but it really helps my oily skin look better. The only thing that may be bothering is its smell and availability. If you’re looking for a lightweight moisturizing gel for oily or combination skin, give this a try! <3
